Facebook, and its revolving door of renovations

by Andrew Lovesey

Although there is no stopping them from updating the website, they could try setting a schedule to coincide with these upgrades. I have no problem with a newer, refurbished, Facebook but non-stop changes to the user interface is just harassment. Especially in the realm of social media when there is a new networking site being born every minute. I can never catch a break, it seems. My inbox is flooded, daily, with invites to new websites where I will ‘connect with professionals’ or ‘join an extensive talent network.’ Will there ever be an end to this madness? Undoubtedly, the answer is no.


Call me a social media junkie, cause that’s what I am.

Through and through.


I basically wake up, sign on. This has been my daily ritual for as many years as I can remember there being the internet. The only variance in the process has been the websites I log into, as they blossom and wilt away into cyberspace – as if they were never there. I breathe technology. I fear the day it speeds past me in its race to perfection, leaving me dazed and confused in its dusty clouds. I can never become technologically incompatible, I will not. That is probably why I spend so much time on the computer. Or my BlackBerry, or my other smart phone. As I said, I’m addicted to social media (and, of course, technology).

Anyway, cutting to the chase. It seems as though it’s every other day that one logs into Facebook only for it to have changed, or been altered in some way. What motivates them to do this? I understand the need to improve, and I comprehend the need for evolution – but why don’t they try implementing these changes every other month. Or every three months for that matter. That would make all the difference. A schedule, a routine. I’m all for change, but I’d like a pretty press release updating me of future changes. I do not think it is too much to ask.
